ETPL Intelligent Wellness Product Ideation Initiative Brief

Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. It embraces the concept of having a more holistic, preventive and assistive healthcare that seeks to achieve a more balance lifestyle by managing the mental, physical, spiritual, occupational and environmental well-being of a person. Intelligent Wellness seeks to promote, support and facilitate these efforts by overcoming, reducing or preventing any encumbrances to achieving these objectives through the innovative use of technology. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential targeting end adoption in the following areas :
• Assistive or providing assistance to the handicap
• Geriatric or silver industry
• Sports
• Tourism
• Personal Wellness & Environment
Participants will get to do field fact-finding trips, participate in brain-storming sessions with people from other professions and walks of life, and learn to conceptualize and develop innovative product ideas and products employing Ideation and Design Thinking tools.
Novel product ideas that are do-able and with significant market potential will be awarded prizes and may gap-funded by ETPL to commercialize them.
A*STAR Researchers are welcome to signup.
